Students from the master’s programme in Applied and Computational Mathematics will become skilled applied mathematicians, well-prepared for advanced industrial positions or continuing graduate studies. The programme offers four tracks: Computational Mathematics, Financial Mathematics, Optimisation and Systems Theory, and Mathematics of Data Science.

The programme consists of foundation courses that are mandatory for all students, and once the individual specialisation track is chosen, there are relevant required courses within that area as well. The programme offers four tracks: Computational Mathematics, Financial Mathematics, Optimisation and Systems Theory, and Mathematics of Data Science.

Regardless of which track students attend, the final term consist of a degree project that may be carried out in an academic or industrial environment in Sweden or abroad. Students are welcome to discuss project ideas with the staff of the Department of Mathematics, but are also encouraged to seek other contacts, in the academic world and in industry, to identify suitable projects. The result of the degree project is provided as a written report and as a presentation at a seminar.

Computational Mathematics track

The field of computer simulations is of great importance for high-tech industry and scientific/engineering research, for example virtual processing, climate studies, fluid dynamics and advanced materials. Thus, computational science and engineering is an enabling technology for scientific discovery and engineering design. It involves mathematical modeling, numerical analysis, computer science, high-performance computing and visualisation. The remarkable development of large scale computing in the last decades has turned computational science and engineering into the "third pillar" of science, complementing theory and experiment.

Financial mathematics track

Financial mathematics is applied mathematics used to analyse and solve problems related to financial markets. Any informed market participant would exploit an opportunity to make a profit without any risk of loss. This fact is the basis of the theory of arbitrage-free pricing of derivative instruments. Arbitrage opportunities exist but are rare. Typically both potential losses and gains need to be considered. Hedging and diversification aim at reducing risk. Speculative actions on financial markets aim at making profits. Market participants have different views of the future market prices and combine their views with current market prices to take actions that aim at managing risk while creating opportunities for profits.

Optimisation and Systems Theory track

Optimisation and Systems Theory is a discipline in applied mathematics primarily devoted to methods of optimisation, including mathematical programming and optimal control, and systems theoretic aspects of control and signal processing. The discipline is also closely related to mathematical economics and applied problems in operations research, systems engineering and control engineering.

Mathematics of Data Science track

Statistics is the science of learning from data. Classical statistics is trying to understand data by determining a plausible model for data, and testing whether the data fits the model. Modern learning is concerned with computational statistics and automated methods for extracting information from data. The technological progress and the increased availability of information contributes to the emergence of massive and complex data sets.

After graduation

Technology manager, deep learning software engineer, team lead, professor, PhD student, credit risk analyst, CEO, head of marketing and sales, technical director, development engineer.

Other English Language Requirements: TOEFL (Paper-based) For English 6: Score of 4.5 (scale 1–6) in written test and a total score of 575.

A bachelor's degree, equivalent to a Swedish bachelor's degree, or equivalent academic qualifications from an internationally recognised university, is required. Students who are following longer technical programmes, and have completed courses equivalent to a bachelor's degree, will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

English language proficiency equivalent to (the Swedish upper secondary school) English course B/6 is required. The requirement can be satisfied through a result equal to, or higher than, those stated in the following internationally recognised English tests:

- TOEFL Paper-based: Score of 4.5 (scale 1-6) in written test, total score of 575.
- TOEFL ITP is not accepted.
- TOEFL iBT internet-based: Score of 20 (scale 0-30) in written test, total score of 90
- IELTS Academic: A minimum overall mark of 6.5, with no section lower than 5.5
- Cambridge ESOL: Cambridge English: Advanced (CAE) Certificate in Advanced English or Cambridge English: Proficiency (CPE) (Certificate of Proficiency in English)
- Michigan English Language Assessment Battery (MELAB): Minimum score of 90
- University of Michigan, ECPE (Examination for the certificate of Proficiency in English)
- Pearson PTE Academic: Score of 62 (writing 61)

The language requirement can also be fulfilled through previous university and upper secondary school studies.
